About this Journey

Located between Shanghai and Kunshan of Jiangsu Province, Dianshan Lake is in Qingpu District. It is the source of Huangpu River, the mother river of Shanghai, and the city’s largest natural freshwater lake. With beautiful hills and broad meadows, the lake covers 62 square kilometers (24 square miles), nearly 12 times large as the West Lake of Hangzhou. It used to be land in ancient times, but later it turned into a lake. It takes its name, Dianshan Lake, due to its proximity to Mt. Dianshan.
At the southeast coast, Dianshan Lake is the beautiful Cengu Ecological Farm. It is an excellent example of a complete and systematic ecosystem. At the farm, students have the opportunity for firsthand biological discovery and experiential learning. Students are walked through every step of the farming process, from seeding to harvesting.
The farm is an excellent showcase of the ecological process and is a real-life opportunity for students to see science in action and connect their studies to the outdoors.
